PSA: Don’t drill a hole in your new iPhone

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – Did you get a new iPhone 7 or 7 Plus, and really wish you had a headphone jack?

I’m just going to get right to the pointand then explain…and I can’t believe I’m saying this…

DON’T DRILL A HOLE IN YOUR PHONE

Okay, so why have people been drilling holes in their new iPhones?

A video on YouTube made the rounds. The guy in the video said Apple placed a hidden headphone jack inside the phone and all you had to do to use it was drill a 3.5 mm hole in the bottom.

Sigh.

No. Just no. Doing that will break your phone. That’s the bottom line.

The video was made as a prank. In fairness, he didn’t say it was a prank…but a good rule of thumb is taking power tools and creating new holes in your gadget will end in tears.
